I don't know if the stable PPA has been updated for 0.6.0-rc7 yet. Try this:

sudo apt-add-repository --yes ppa:zfs-native/daily && sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get -y install spl-dkms && sudo apt-get -y install zfs-dkms

Note that I am the Gentoo maintainer, so I can't be of much more
assistance than this.
